The Poker Edge, Ante Up! and Poker Fraud Alert: This Week in Poker Podcasts
Beware of the flying “Baby”s this week on The Poker Edge podcast as Andrew Feldman welcomes Scotty Nguyen to the program. The conversation starts out on with Scotty’s views of life and family. C’mon, who isn’t interested in the meaning of life according to Scotty?
Then the focus shifts to the WSOP. Scotty talks about how he has had to adapt to the challenges of the game as it has evolved in recent years. He also makes some bold statements about his projected performance this year at the series.
To close out the show Andrew checks in with BLUFF Magazine Editor-in-Chief Lance Bradley to get his take on how the 2012 WSOP is shaping up. They talk about the first handful of events and the attendance and logistics to that point. However keep in mind that this show didn’t air until Friday, so many of the controversies that have happened recently at the WSOP won’t be covered.
This week the Ante Up! Pokercast welcomes guest co-host 2007 Main Event seventh place finisher Lee Childs. There was a decided difference with Childs in the booth this week. For those of you that enjoy the community feel of the show but crave a bit more advanced strategy, this show is for you.
Childs takes the Ante Up! audience to the next level with his in-depth poker hand analysis. Childs also seems like a natural in the booth and would make an excellent addition to the show even if only for a sponsored strategy segment to promote his live training seminars that he conducts around the country.
Well there wasn’t much poker talk on the Poker Fraud Alert this week, but I still found the show to be entertaining. Falling in line with their promise that they wouldn’t impose limits on the length of the show, Druff, Drexel and Vwls take their listeners on a four hour joy ride. From Drexel’s prostitution experiences to Druffs prank call to the interview with ex-porn star turned escort Jenny Anderson, the show just keeps on giving.
During the “Ask Vwls” segment, a listener asked who Vwls’ choice for a poker lesbian experience would be: Vanessa Selbst, Kathy Liebert or Annie Duke. I don’t want to spoil the suspense so you will have to tune in yourself to find out who she picked.
The show I wanted to listen to but didn’t get to was the The Bernard Lee Poker Show. The guest on his latest episode was week was WSOP Tournament Director, Jack Effel. My main interest in listening to Jack is to see what he wat have to say about the new vocalizing of action rule. Now this show was recorded before the controversy ensued and though an interview next week would probably be more interesting, I’d still like to hear his “before” comments on the subject.
That’s all for this week. As usual, feel free to leave your own reviews, rip on mine, or suggest other poker podcasts for my listening pleasure.
